Airports & Airlines

Queen Alia International Airport, about 35km south of Amman, is the country’s main gateway. Recently subject to an impressive refurbishment, it has ATMs, foreign exchange counters, a post office and left-luggage counter. The departure lounge has several cafes and a good range of duty-free gift items, including Arabic sweets and some souvenirs. Car-rental agencies are located in the arrivals building.

The only other international airport is at Aqaba, where some international carriers stop en route to Amman. Flights to Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt are handled from here. Charter flights from Europe tend to come and go depending on regional stability, but at the time of writing a new low-cost carrier was about to be announced, operating out of Aqaba.

The national airline, Royal Jordanian (www.rj.com), is well established with a good safety record. It has direct flights to most major cities in Europe and all Middle Eastern capitals, and runs short flights from Amman to Aqaba (twice daily). Royal Wings (www.royalwings.com.jo), a subsidiary of Royal Jordanian, has smaller planes and runs expensive charter flights.
